Thinking of buying a holiday investment property?
With demand for self-catering properties in the UK at an all-time high, you may be considering investing in your very own holiday property.
The past few years have seen enormous growth in self-catering holidays within the UK, and not only can it be very financially rewarding, but also a way of owning your very own slice of heaven, right here on the coast.
But making the decision to invest in a holiday home requires careful consideration. Do you understand the local area and demand? Can you find trusted contractors? Who will provide you with ongoing management? Where do you start with marketing? How will you be in Norfolk when you live hundreds of miles away?
Don’t fret, we can help. From the minute you decide to purchase in Norfolk or Suffolk, we can be your ears and eyes on the ground. We can attend property viewings for you (trust us, we've done a lot of this!), we know the right areas to buy in, we know what works and what doesn't, and we are happy to act as consultants for you throughout the whole process. We can then be involved with you and the property as little or as much as you need.
Over the last three years, Karen has been working alongside a well-known accommodation agency in Norfolk and has gained a wealth of inside knowledge as to how a holiday company runs. As well as running a Property Management company and being self-employed since 2006.
Louisa has over 10 years of property marketing and business experience, so between us, we know what makes guests happy, and sadly sometimes unhappy, and have the knowledge needed to build relationships with guests.
We are members of around 35 Facebook marketing groups and extensively advertise on these, all of our social media platforms, Buy Local Norfolk and Proudly Norfolk, both of which we are members of, and network with as much as possible. We like to talk and have a wealth of contacts that we rely on to help us with promotion.
We can arrange to meet you face to face on any video platform of your choosing, such as FaceTime, Zoom, or Skype, to go through any questions you may have.
Our bespoke Buying Service starts with us identifying the sort of property you are looking to purchase, drawing up a list of areas we can focus on, and then either viewing properties on your behalf or accompanying you on viewings.
We are happy to visit the property at any stage of the buying process to create a more accurate income projection, provide feedback on the layout, scour the local area, go over all outside spaces, and get to know the location.
It's really important that you know the surrounding area, and luckily we know the Norfolk and Suffolk coast very well. We can also arrange for architects/surveyors/ builders to visit the property with regards to surveys, possible improvements, and renovation plans.
When you have decided to make a purchase, we can negotiate the final deal for you, making sure you get your dream property in the area of your choice at the right price, to obtain maximum rental returns.
We are here to answer all of the questions you have. We can offer knowledge, support, and answers and are happy to deal with any anxieties and concerns you may have before you put in that all-important final offer!
